Thank You Gift Stampin' Up! Style

This has been one of those days that I had more things scheduled than I could do in two days. And this is why I'm so glad I have Stampin' Up! products ready in my studio and have made some gifts ahead of time.
Today I needed a thank you gift for a neighbor lady who sent home the most delicious apple crisp with my husband as a thank you for the job he did installing her new wood flooring. He was scheduled for a two week job but she wanted more done than he was scheduled for. He was almost finished with the job and I wanted to give her a little something to say thank you back for the apple crisp so he could deliver it to her when he finished today.
Fortunately, a couple of weeks ago, I made and posted some cute little Fancy Favor Boxes. I saw a video on how to make these on Patty Bennett's blog and I had to make some.
I put them aside. Well today, I pulled one out and made this cute little thank you gift in no time at all.

I had some Hershey Nuggets so I put some in a 4" x 6" Cellophane bag, tied a piece of 5/8" Crochet Trim around the bag and attached the leaf cut from the Autumn Accents Die after I sponges Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso ink around the outside of the leaf, I attached it with Linen Thread. I wrote a little note on the back of the leaf and was finished in about Five minutes. It was just in time. My husband was ready to walk out the door.

When I cut out leaves, or another shapes using the Big Shot and a Die or Framelits Die I cut out extra to keep on hand for a quick and easy card or project. I was glad I had extra leaves today. I store my extras in a cello bag and have it ready when I need something fast.

This week I am going to post a tutorial on how to make these cute little Fancy Favor Boxes so I will wait to list what you will need to make one or more of these boxes.

Hope you week end is going well. Mine is just flying by!
Happy Stampin'
